Vision: To be such a place of joy and inspiration, that our children are disappointed if they are not able to attend.
Sunday School Programs:
The insights and concerns of parents at Trinity create Trinity’s Sunday School experience. The curriculum is a published program frequently supplemented by Trinity staff and parents to meet the needs and style of our community. Children at Trinity usually participate in one large class. The “one-room” schoolhouse approach assures that siblings or best friends and guests do not need to be separated. Parents are welcome to assist at any time, or even just watch.
The Gospels tell us of the crowds that surrounded Jesus as he taught – crowds that included families with children. While Jesus seems to have been comfortable teaching multigenerational crowds, his present day followers don’t often follow that example. So many separate activities are planned for separate age groups that families who come to church looking for time together can find that the church provides little or no family time at all. This isn’t true at Trinity, where seasonal activities are planned for all ages.
With crafts, games, and always something to take home, we get in touch with Christian traditions and practices that can become part of daily life. We also experience the unique reality of a Christian community, one where all ages can learn to value each other. Look for intergenerational events in Advent and Lent, as well as special ones to prepare for baptism and other celebrations. Bringing the whole family of God together is one of the purposes of Trinity’s life and ministry.
For babies and toddlers, Trinity’s nursery is staffed professionally during the 10:00 service, Holy Week, and most evening services and events. Teen volunteers assist as well. Parents are invited to assist as needed, or to take a respite while the little ones are happy and safe.
